Officials in Sonoma County, California, are worried that the Dry Creek Rancheria
might revive plans for a new casino.
The tribe submitted a land-into-trust application for a 277-acre site back in 2005. After running into opposition, the tribe agreed not to pursue gaming there until 2016, The Petaluma Argus-Courier reported.
With that deadline approaching, the tribe is preparing a new application for the site.
A county official who met with the tribe said the plan does not appear to include a casino.
The tribe has not yet submitted a new application to the Bureau of Indian Affairs
